Such problems embrace a whole range of health (medical and psychiatric) problems, social, marital, sexual, academic, spiritual and other problems.

The counselling services are aimed at meeting the psychological needs of students by providing a safe, supportive, and confidential environment that promotes self-awareness, fosters responsibility and respect, and teaches effective coping strategies. The University counsellor is available from Monday to Tuesday at Rubaga Campus; and from Wednesday to Friday at the Main Campus.

The personal safety and security of each student is both an individual and community concern. The University has partnered with Security Group (Uganda) Limited to provide security services.

While it strives to provide a campus environment free of undue risks to persons and property, it is each person’s responsibility to pay attention to his or her surroundings, to avoid hazardous situations, and to exercise his or her own best judgment to maintain personal safety and wellbeing.
